To Impeach or Not to Impeach
PJ Media ^ | June 25, 2014 | David Solway

Posted on 06/25/2014 11:12:36 AM PDT by QT3.14

It has been persuasively argued that President Obama is impeachable on many grounds. Having joked that he could do anything he wants, Obama is guilty of running roughshod over the Constitution, bypassing Congress and governing by executive decree, stuffing his administration with Muslim Brotherhood operatives, making common cause with America’s enemies and betraying its allies, promoting the global warming scam at enormous cost to the taxpayer, accepting illicit campaign donations, failing to defend U.S. soil against illegal border crossings (in direct contravention of Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution), being in contempt of federal court for his oil-drilling moratorium in the Gulf, allowing the IRS to target conservative nonprofits seeking tax-exempt status, approving via his attorney general Operation Fast and Furious, concocting the Benghazi cover-up, and constantly and illegally rewriting the rules of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, at least 29 times to date. A more comprehensive record of Obama’s ethical violations and misdemeanors lists 51 reasons for impeachment, some of which may be comparatively borderline, others flagrant.

Impeachment proceedings would be a great way to tie up a lame duck session so the outgoing reps can’t get to any mischief.

NEVER EVER gonna happen with the bunch of wussies the GOP has in the District of Corruption. The shenanigans of Thad Cochran last night convinced me I am tuning out of all politics for the rest of my short remaining life. I am done. I will still read FR, Zerohedge, Canada Free press but I am done voting, or supporting any candidates. Finished, done, over.

If a new conservative party emerges in the next couple of years I will take another look.

Regardless, if he is convicted in the "court of public opinion" it could have a profound affect on election day (maybe).

It could also be that we're already beyond redemption.

Still enough Dhimmicrats and sissy-Mary republicans in the house to impeach. Impeachment would be racist.

Thomas Sowell, whom I otherwise always respect immensely, made the unbelievable contention in a column a few days ago that impeachment would risk civil unrest, implying that it would not be well advised. I think that is comparable to mafia goons quelling dissent by offering “protection.”

Where did principle go in all this discussion?

If the IRS scandal can be tied back to the White House, then impeachment becomes almost a necessity to avert a constitutional crisis.

Bring the case for impeachent to the public's attention (or try to), then put it on the Democrats to deal with their problem.

Gope will never impeach anyway. But maybe they could try and wake a few people up to the crimes taking place in D.C. .

Reid’s Senate would never vote to convict, no matter how grave the offense. And that’s assuming the House would vote to impeach. The Republic is in critical condition.

Public opinion hasn’t seemed to affect Clinton’s impeachment by any means...I doubt Obama will be affected either. He’s already made his plans for rolling in the dough once he’s gone....liberal progressives could care less what their representatives do...it’s all about winning by any means until your done in office.

If there’s to be any affect on election day..it will be for what Obama has or has not done...not what he’s been charged or not with.

I live in Texas. Even if we take the Senate, impeachment won’t affect me but I truly think it will create civil unrest in Blue state cities. I’m not so much for innocents getting hurt. I hope and pray we can wait out 3 more years.

LOL. When was the last time you hear any politician answer a simple yes/no question with a simple yes/no?

And how do you anticipate forcing them?

That question should have been posed 12 months ago during and in the beginning phases of the election.

Looking at how focused the GOPe is on suppressing TEA candidates, as opposed to defeating the Left, I think the cake is baked. Add in the fact that a large percentage of the GOP base is beside itself about the situation and will probably stay home or become suicide voters and vote ‘Rat to take out the RINOs. I’m becoming less sanguine about the general by the day.

Several of the posted comments support my contention that a vote of “no confidence” might be an effective first step. Calls for resignation could also have an impact if taken up by the right voices.
Impeachment takes at least 2 years, assuming that the inevitable roadblocks would be hurdled. Meanwhile, damage is being done everywhere. The nation’s sovereignty and security are being undermined rapidly and daily.
A vote by Congress of “no confidence,” however, is short and sweet notice that the fraudster king is losing his mandate.
Even to have state legislatures, governors, mayors, anybody who holds authority, take up the call of “no confidence” in the fraudster/traitor/liar will increase the power of the call for his removal. It might well prevent some damage even if it has no observable direct effect.

Impeachment could be done in the house in two weeks, with a Senate trial two weeks after that.

The trouble with impeaching this bag ‘o crap is that he would become a martyr (St. Barry of the Perpetual Welfare Line) to the freeloaders and they would then demand that his mug be carved into Mt. Rushmore. Everyone who didn’t show up with a hammer and chisel would be “rebranded” as a “rasis”.

be PATIENT...... wait to see if repubs/T can take the SENATE... get rid of Mumbles Reid and then IMPEACH... MORE IMPORTANT WOULD BE TO HAVE A MAJ TO OVERRIDE ANY PREZ VETO.
START WITH OBUMBLERCARE - REPEAL
SECURE THE BORDERS
DEFEND THE CURRENCY BY REDUCING DEFICIT SPENDING AND BALANCED BUDGET
VA - ABOLISH AND TRANSFER BENEFITS TO A PRIVTE INSURANCE PLAN
Xl PIPE - APPROVE
IRS - ABOLISH CAPITAL GAINS AND SET PERSONAL INCOME TAX AT 10%
EPA - UNWRITE 25000 PAGES OF LIBTARTD PC UNICORN B.S.
ACCELERATE LNG TERMINAL AND INFRASTRUCTURE CONSTRUCTION
DRILL BABY DRILL
ELIMINATE WELFARE AND DISABILITY ABUSE
.... then get down to serious stuff...

I guess it’s not so much what more can he do, it’s just another two and a half years of policy/executive action and inaction that could cause a collapse of our economy/markets/middle class/social programs.

Cloward-Piven. I read the definition and it fits to the tee what this bozo up there in D.C. is doing. Overwhelm the current system to facilitate a collapse in order to bring about a new system of governance.

Stock market is at all time highs, economy contracted by 3% along with stagnant wages/rising cost of living. 18-20 trillion debt, unfunded liabilities at somewhere around 60 trillion (GDP of the entire globe), adding hundreds of thousands of illegals to the system, looming war and or attack on our homeland.

Sounds like the wheels are falling off the wagon if you ask me. In another two years...we may well be shooting. Who knows, but I see storm clouds on the horizon.

Our Constitution does not provide for a “no confidence” vote such as those common in parliamentary democracies. So any such vote would be largely symbolic and not binding. Not to diminish the value of symbols. They can be powerful tools to effect change. But legally they carry no weight.

It's not about a parliamentary-defined event, IronJack. It's about making such a strong statement that it would by its nature undermine the tyrant. Symbolic? Well, yes and no. Nobody has ever before told a sitting president, formally, that he is on such thin ice that he is facing removal and arrest.

Failing that, I'd like to see him refused entry to a state on the grounds he has been declared “persona non grata.” Has been declared a traitor in the great state of (fill in the blank). Has an arrest warrant in (name state) with his alleged name and 5 or 6 aka’s on it.

The media liars could ignore it a few minutes, then Alinsky it, but the story goes viral despite them.

We are not as helpless as it may seem.
